2017 Yamaha XT250 Buyer's Guide | Specs & Price
2017 Yamaha XT250

The 2017 Yamaha XT250 will appeal to riders looking for a dirt-capable dual-sport bike with an approachable seat height and easy operation.

With electric starting and fuel injection, the XT250 is a trouble free machine with a long history of dependability. Off-road, due to moderate suspension travel and basic suspension units, the XT250 will do best at lower speeds and on smoother trails when riding off-road.

Freeway use will be limited, but the XT250 makes for an outstanding urban commuter with weight under 300 pounds, a good perch for viewing your surroundings, and impressive 200-mile range that comes from great fuel economy and a decent-sized fuel tank.
